2017 Franklin B. Walter Scholarship

On April 5, 2017 the Warren County ESC hosted the 2nd Annual Franklin B. Walter Scholarship Award Program.  Participating school districts included Carlisle, Franklin, Greater Ohio Virtual School, Kings, Lebanon, Little Miami, Middletown, Springboro, Warren County Career Center, and Waynesville.  Several Warren County elected officials attended along with many school district administrators.


Each school district was asked to select their top academic student and submit their application to the Warren County ESC.  The students were honored at the banquet and presented with a $500 scholarship, a plaque, and a proclamation from Senator Wilson.

To show appreciation for our educators, students were asked to write a letter to an educator or mentor who has impacted their life.  The students read their letters aloud to the group and presented their recognized educator with a $250 cash award and framed copy of the letter.

Recognized educators/mentors included:  Beth Andrews, Annette Bowles, Lynn Brant, Danny Brooks, Rachel Castro, Merryann Evans, Randy Gray, Mark Rogal, Leslie Schleman, and Jodi Titmas.


An overall county winner was selected from the ten student recipients by the Warren County Governing Board members who attended a statewide awards program sponsored by the Ohio Educational Service Center Association in Worthington, Ohio.
